“We are going to work through the weekend to address the student and his family.
We will not be releasing additional information at this time,” said District spokesman Matt DeGuire.
The district’s campus was placed on lockdown at 7:40 p.ms.

The San Diego school district did not provide details on Shah’s condition.
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer said Thursday that the district was working with state and local health officials to determine the student’s status.
